Samhain (or Halloween) is an ancient Celtic festival associated with bonfires and marks the beginning of winter and the Celtic New Year. Twisted stitches and intertwined cables in these socks are reminiscent of smoke tendrils rising up from a fire, and also echo the Celtic inspiration behind these socks. Offered in three sizes, and in either toe-up or cuff down options this sock pattern has something for everyone. If you are a beginner - why not try just a central cable motif rather than the all-over pattern. I'm not going to lie to you - this sock does have a lot of twisted stitches but I believe that it gives a fabulous definition to the cables and gives fantastic texture. This pattern is presented in toe-up and cuff down versions - please ensure you download your required option before you have been through the checkout process. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit socks from the toe up cable GAUGE 32st to 4" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Medium (8" circumference) or Large (9") SUGGESTED YARN 400 yards of Fingering weight

Supplies Needed

  • 100g sock weight (fingering weight) yarn,

My username is LouiseTilbrook and my website is My passion for knitting socks has finally spilled over into sock pattern design. My aim is to create simple but classic socks in semi-solid and solid colours - suitable for men and women alike. All too often I have struggled to find sock patterns suitable for the men in my life which don’t involve miles of stockinette so I decided to create a range of straightforward and elegant patterns, easily adaptable for men and women. I love to support British Indie dyers and have a particular fondness for semi-solids and subtle colourways.
